Est. 1874.
"Phildelphia Old & New" suggested that the premises consisted of two 5 storey buildings or 40 x 125 feet.

In 1892, Angelo Myers joined with several other prominent Philadelphia wholesalers to build the Philadelphia Pure Rye Whiskey distillery in Bucks Co., PA.

In February 1905, the company incorporated with a capital of $50,000. They were described as being distillers.

By 1906 (most likely earlier), the company was advertising the Linfield distillery as being the source of their Kinsey Rye brand. A letter dated April 1907 notes that Anjelo Myers had taken control of the distillery.

In 1910, the Company consisted of Angelo J. Myers (President), Florence M Bamberger, Miriam M. Moos and Henry J Bissinger. Angelo was also Vice President of the Rose Manufacturing Co.

In 1915, the company officers were Angelo J. Myers (VP), Henry J Bissinger (Pres/Treas), Jacob Pfeifer (Sec). The directory again shows Angelo as Vice President of the Rose manufacturing Co.

There are no listings for the company in 1919/1920 or later.

The company used the brand names:
"Ardmore", "Baumont Gin", "Independence Hall", "Kinsey", "Kinsey Special", "Myers Pure Malt", "Neshaminy Rye", "Oglethorpe Club", "Old Barrel", "Old Schuylkill Choice Rye", "Penngleann ", "Penngleann ", "Schuylkill ", "Schuylkill ", and "W. W. W. Rye."
